50 years ago today my brother and I returned to school after the summer break. For my brother, it was his first day at a new school; for me, it was the beginning of my third year. So early, on drizzly Vancouver morning, we got on our bikes and drove the approximately 5km to school. Taking our bikes saved us bus fare, which was 7 cents return. One could buy 21 jawbreakers for 7 cents.
So today, once more, is my first day back at school. The first day of a 2 year, full-time, MFA Documentary Media program. I look forward to it. I’ll confess to being a bit nervous.
